Earlier today, a local Christian radio host described humans’ desire to keep things complicated. He added if things are not complicated enough, we will make sure to dip our muddy hands in the pot and stir things around (these sentences were a summary of his message on 88.1, The Brant and Sherri Show).
Brant’s ultimate statement pointed us to Jesus and the call to be humble.
Three days ago, I received God’s nudge to read this passage every day:
Therefore, if you have any encouragement from being united with Christ, if any comfort from His love, if any common sharing in the Spirit, if any tenderness and compassion, then make my joy complete by being like-minded, having the same love, being one in spirit and of one mind. Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves, not looking to your own interests but each of you to the interests of others (Philippians 2:1-4).
While this passage is packed full of truth, the words united, of one mind and of one spirit are speaking loudly.
The glory of the crucifixion is
the saving of His people not just individuals,
that every knee shall bow not just one here or there,
and the growth of His Kingdom so that a larger number see the new heaven and new earth.
We are not waiting for just a few more sheep.
Peter and Paul thought Jesus was coming soon.
Over 2,000 years later we are still saying the same thing. Those in the know nod their heads to the word soon. We know it is God’s definition or lack thereof. We defer to the Only Holy One who will choose His perfect return time.
Until then, join me in making His joy complete.
As one, we shall roll.
In Him is where and when and how we roll.
If I have commented on your blog or your social media post, It’s how we roll in Christ,
it comes from an authentic, Biblical place (refer again to the Phil 2:1-4).
As a woman, I desire more unity in my marriage, in my family. Who doesn’t?
As part of the body of Christ, my heart burns for unity in His name in all of life, including my marriage and family.
is magnified in His body when we not only know His truth but live it.
Good evening! This message has been rolling around in my heart for awhile. How would our lives change if we as a people sought unity with each other while we seek in humble adoration our Jesus?
Perhaps heavy for a Saturday night, but I believe the topic is heavily weighted in Heaven and deserves more attention amongst us.
